Holiday notice Spring 2021


A letter from the DCs.

Hi Everyone

In the hope that Lockdown restrictions will be lifted in time for us to hold activities in the Easter Holidays, we have prepared a busy programme, with hopefully, something for everyone.

We are very much looking forward to meeting you and your ponies/horses as soon as possible.

We have received some wonderful videos introducing us to you and your ponies/horses as per our request on the Wynnstay PC Facebook page. Do please keep them coming and enjoy making them if you have the time. Hopefully it will give you a fun break from home schooling! You can either post them on our Group page (protected access) or email them to us on

While lockdown is still in place, we would love you to join us for the fun family quiz on Saturday 20th February at 6pm. Please email to enter soon, as there are limited places. You will then be sent the necessary links about an hour before the quiz starts. Please note, you will need two devices eg. a phone and a laptop, or a PC and a laptop, so long as there is internet access from both.

The Calendar for the rest of the Spring will be sent out soon, but in the meantime, we wanted to let you know about Spring Half Term when we have arranged a whole day Central Rally at Kelsall which will cost just £1! This represents a huge saving, and is a gesture to compensate for all the activities lost due to Lockdown. We do hope that all Members will take advantage of this – it is sure to be popular and we may have to limit numbers, so please BOOK EARLY.

Central Rally 1st June Kelsall Hill Equestrian Centre, CW6 0SR Jo Adams & Belinda Hutchinson Smith

All events, except for the Quiz need to be booked on-line.  However, in view of continued uncertainty on easing Lockdown, we are going to wait until the PM sets out his plans for relaxing social distancing before opening any bookings.

We are holding charges to be the same as last year, which is Rallies at a free venue £12, and Rallies at a venue where we have to pay by the hour £15. XC Rallies costs depend on the venue and the instructor charges. Picnic Rides and similar events are £1 which is a nominal cost just so that we can use the Booking System.

We are sending this email to all current Members, and also to all those who lapsed at the end of January, in the hope that you are intending to re-join at some stage.

Please remember you will not be able to book rallies unless you have renewed your Membership.

With very best wishes

Belinda and Jo
